Well I sniped these from Snerps sale at a helluva price. Just wondering if these will push me to the 3ghz mark on stock volts? I can get to 2.9ghz but my ram now is at 3.53v and I am just afraid to go any higher with it. Also if I can only stil get to 2.9ghz could I go 1:1 with em?

And no I am NOT selling my GEIL ONE set at this time.

EDIT: Also can I disable the paging file in winblows due to having 2gb?

You CANNOT disable your paging file with 2GB of ram. I tried it and had BADBADBAD results...

App's loaded super slow and gaming on it was extremely dismal.

Not too shabby. I need to find some new ram, still 512mb 4year old corsair value lmao.

Im not sure if you can hit 290Mhz on those but its worth a try but dont start them off with such a high voltage.

I got a gig sitting here Wheezey I would sell for cheap. Its just some cheaper corsair but would give you a boost. PM me if interested.

And yes Snerp the great let them go for $175 shipped and I thank him so much for that as thats the only ram I would allow to replace my GEIL ONE.

You trying to run 5 apps at onces while gaming...? I got great results from turning my page filing off, plus I don't have to hear my hard drive every 3 seconds.

Try turning it off, if you see bad things happening, turn it on I guess, but I doubt anything will happen.

Blazen Asian got his RAM up to 290. Look for his build log, and he has screenshots of his RAM settings. I maxed at 270, but I didn't have some of the optioned he did with his DFI.

I hear ASUS mobo's do not get along with them but DFI mobo's do very well.

So do I put these in the yellow slots? My BH-5 works best in the orange slots.

Yep, ive been having trouble with my G.skill HZ PC4000 on my Asus. I have to use a 166 divider at 240. The Samsung UCCCs aren't fully compatible with the Asus mobos.

So yeah. The best way to describe this ram.... To infinity and beyond.

If its hard to see: CPU: 2.9Ghz RAM: 269Mhz

I lowered the multi to 9.5 so the CPU wouldnt bottleneck the ram. I have the volts at 2.8 and I wont be going any higher then that. Also I didnt prime this for two reasons. One I know the CPU can handle 2.9ghz and I played Silkroad for like 12hrs today and when you get into the city in that game it can be a memory hog never got a BSOD or a in game error. I also played a little FEAR and everything went smooth. Next step will be to tighten the suggested timings.

EDIT: And after using the timings suggest in another thread it is almost as fast as my GEIL ONE... almost as fast.
